Sewing Corner

This was my last finish last year. My mum gave me the stitchery pattern and buttons for Christmas 2009, so it was nice to have it totally finished before the end of 2010. I think the button really make it, I love the sewing machine button.
I picked up some border fabric during a weekend getaway. I think it finished it of nicely. I kept the quilting simple, just around the zinger and then large stippling in the boarder.
I also wanted to share this great fabric my mum gave me this year and cute bag my brother sent, the best part of the bag was it came filled with some of my childhood favorite treats - all gone now.
Here are a couple of cute dolls quilts that my mum made for LM.
This rail fence she already had made, I really like it. Some times these simple designs just appeal to me.
This blue one she made special. It is so pretty, sorry not the best photo.
I had a frustrating time in the sewing room today. I was working on my jar table runner and was about put it all together when I found out that I had made the center an inch too short. I have enough fabric to redo it, but have not decided if that is what I am going to do. I should have stop earlier as I keep cutting things the wrong size. Oh well these things happen. Time to work on something else.

This is such a pretty quilt. I love the Blue fabric and the squares.
